ABC – Friday 14 November
Hailing from Sheffield, ABC came to prominence as part of the early 80s New Wave scene and enjoyed a great deal of chart success, including their debut album, Lexicon of Love, topping the charts in 1982. Vocalist Martin Fry may be the one remaining member of the original line-up, but he is still one of pop music’s most impressive frontmen. With the band releasing their last album, Traffic, in 2008, guests should expect to hear both old favourites and modern classics from Fry and company.
The Christians – Friday 12 December
Hailing from Liverpool, The Christians were one of a spate of 80s bands from the UK influenced in equal parts by soul and post-punk. The band went on to achieve considerable chart success in the UK and abroad, with hits such as Harvest for the World, Ideal World and Words, and the number 1 album Colour. The band’s last release came in 2012, and they continue to tour regularly, so expect a polished and tight show from the Merseyside boys.
